I finished something

Teething ring

I actually finished a crafty project. A maple teething ring with a cotton flap for the baby to slobber on if they prefer fabric over wood. I got all fancy and used a COWYAK provisional cast on so there’s no seam on either side. Oooh, fancy. I actually have 5 of these teething rings to make and only finished one….and it’s a fairly small something but still it’s a something and it’s finished so it counts. I’m officially a hot mess these days…only not so hot. Mostly just a mess. I’ve had some pretty extreme nausea lately and have found life pretty rough. But I’m 12 weeks tomorrow and oh so excited about the approach of trimester 2. I have to be honest….I am finding pregnancy to be much harder than I expected. Anyway…I think that this time I actually, really, truly am starting to feel human more and more often. And I am super excited about getting the urge to sew. I’m just waiting for the energy to match the urge. Any day now….

    Glad you’re doing so well. 🙂 With the third I spewed every day to 20 weeks (and blood pressure so low I could not stand), she’s perfect. Yes, it is hard work- first third sick, second meant to be best, third enormous and piddly. THEN you get a BABY. And wonder what you ever did with all that time and sleep before. So happy for you.
    Plus the baby will only want to chew on: your hair, the handle of the really expensive leather bag you can’t replace, really dirty keys, or the cat toy, etc. They DO have a sense of humour…

    Aah, not Ken, Leslie. He’s been on the bike forums again.

    What a pretty teething ring, and the embroidered goody under it is cute as well.

    I hope things mellow out for you during the 2nd trimester =). It really is hard to have a true sense of what to expect with the first pregnancy and first child!

  5. (sorry it is hard but…) this makes me so happy to read ! trimestre 2 is a bliss so don’t you worry about that. and please don’t buy a Kaloo right ? far-away provider to be advised, as promised 😉 xoxo

    So happy for you! With the third one I was nauseous all the time( morning sickness my butt!); and I worked in a deli. So not fun 😦 . I ate alot of soda crackers. I also found that eating just a little every two hours ( as opposed to eating meals) was much easier and helped me keep food down. Take care of yourself and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
